If you completed the online Bookstore Authorization form for the summer 2015, it will NOT remain valid for Fall 2015 and Spring 2016. The online Bookstore Authorization form for the 2015-2016 aid year will be available on July 10, 2015. If you previously completed the form for 2014-2015 (including Summer 2015), it must be resubmitted with a valid electronic signature.
Students with financial aid awards for Fall 2015 can purchase books against their excess financial aid–either online or in campus bookstores—from August 10 through September 10, the 16-week (term) census date. A second book purchase period will be open for students who still have anticipated aid from two weeks before the second 8-week term through that term census date, October 7-29.
Students wishing to purchase books on-line must complete and sign the Bookstore Authorization E-Form, via the Financial Aid Dashboard, prior to completing a purchase. Students who completed the Bookstore Authorization form for summer 2015 must submit a new form for 2015-2016 after the form becomes available on July 10, 2015. Students enrolled or planning to enroll in later starting classes who desire to use their financial aid to purchase books must purchase during one of the two purchase periods; no additional accommodations will be made. The financial aid process must be complete and anticipated aid must be enough to cover tuition, fees and books. Files can have no negative holds.
